Someone asked me the other day what being a worship pastor meant to me. I’ve been thinking more and more about the question ever since.
As I was getting ready to sing a song Sunday morning, it dawned on me what I should have said. The song was “Praise You In the Storm” by Casting Crowns. I was thinking through the words. I thought of the storms that I have weathered in my life by the grace of God. I thought about the fact that God does not promise the Christian a life of ease, but promises to be faithful to complete the good work within us. I prayed that I would be able to convey even a portion of these truths to my church.
Then it hit me. That is the essence of my calling. To show the people I serve the message behind the song. To open my heart to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and then show my heart to my congregation. That is what being a worship pastor means to me.
